• Welcome to the Navigator Team




    Navigator Mission Statement

    Our goal is to create a supportive educational environment that promotes strong academic achievement and responsible social behavior. We believe it is the goal of education to expand knowledge in all its variety. Students will have the opportunity to: become a self-motivated learner, think critically, evaluate their own educational progress, work cooperatively, problem solve and communicate effectively. 


    Dear Navigator Student:


    Welcome to Navigator at EMS! We hope that you are enjoying your summer.  We are looking forward to the upcoming school year with you and know that it will be a great year together! 


    This year, we are asking students to bring a backpack to carry their school supplies as we will not be using lockers.  Additionally, both breakfast (or snack), and lunch will be free again this year for all students.  

    You will be receiving a chromebook to use for your everyday school work.  In the first few weeks of school, we will review proper computer etiquette and care.  Chromebooks will not be allowed to go home.

    One change for this year is that students will be having Physical Education everyday they are in school.  The plan is for PE to be outside so students will need to come prepared regardless of the weather.

    The first day of school is Wednesday, August 25th.  Please bring the following with you:

    • school supplies
    • healthy snack if you want 
    • your summer reading “homework”
    • Clothes and shoes for being active
    • An extra mask
    • well rested mind and body eager to begin a new year

    Classes are done differently on the Navigator Team as students do not solely travel with their homeroom. Students will be mixed throughout the day for their core classes (Math, Language Arts, and Science) and only spend a short time in their homeroom in the morning for Morning Meeting.
